Slow graphics card

Dec 5, 2018
I have the Lenovo Y520 legion gaming laptop which has

16 gb ram
Gtx 1050
I7 7700hq
1tb HDD

And i thought i should get an m.2 970 EVO drive and upgrade my laptop, so i did that and reinstalled a fresh windows 10 install, since my drive was filling up, and everything worked fine untill i started a game, the game was sooo slow and used only 400 vram for some reason, i tried alot of soloutions like restarting the pc, changing to the default BIOS settings, and also reinstalling the game but still nothing please help.
